theCHIVE’s First Official Meetup: Beer, booze, and photobombs (47 Photos)

493 0 0

Last week was one for the books here at theCHIVE. We flew in your favorite Chivettes, Lauren Gentile, Willow Hubbard, and Erin Willet for the inaugural Chivette Calendar shoot. We can't thank the girls enough, not only for being beautiful, but also for being every bit as awesome in person as you'd hope. We've included a few behind-the-scenes shots below.

The week culminated on Saturday with our first official Chive Meetup. The energy in the room Saturday night was amazing. Meeting our Chivers really brought home how far the site has come in just a couple short years. It was a humbling experience for Leo and I to see Chivers from every age and ethnicity come together for a good laugh. Our Chivers are the most positive group of people out there. The only thing that trumped your high aptitude for drinking was your photobombing skills. Needless to say, we're going to do this again.

Special thanks to The Devil's Box, Ice King Creations, Hotel Irwin, Main on Main, Jessie Ross, our sister Emily from theBERRY, Elyse Porterfield, and all of our awesome Chivers. You've made the site what it is today. And, yes, we're fixing the goddam iPhone App.

Chive On!

John 'n Leo

    I'm glad i didnt go.. Look at all those fucking hipsters… GOD DAMN HIPSTERS!!!

  • Lyrex

    I love how "hover hands" are almost expected in these situations.

  • the frenchman

    Awesome, Erin looks so beautiful #15

    While I do agree that you make some valid points, especially the address, I had to find it on Craigslist😦

    You have to to remember this was THE FIRST one so the fact that it didn't go completely to shit and everyone has a good time is SUPER awesome.

    And they aren't Millionaires (at least not that I know of) 8K really doesn't by a lot.
    $40 for a ticket = only 6 beers OR the shirt + renting the space + the after party + flying the girls out and putting them up and per diem + the band + the food + misc expenses. It adds up SUPER fast, so I say CHEERS and good show guys.

    And you know what, live and learn, this just means we have to have one next year to make sure all the bugs are fixed!

    What the hell did you expect for $40 bucks your own personal hooker, booze and food served as soon as you got there 3 hours late??
    HATERS GONNA HATE!
    My GF and I had a blast and got pretty smashed. Everyone was super cool folks from the site (Berry and Chive) Chivettes and their Bf's (if they were in attendance) the eats were good while they lasted thru the night and the open bar was fucken FREE! CHEERS GUYS SEE Y'ALL NEXT TIME

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Armando-R-Nevarez/100002033691667 Armando R. Nevarez

      ohhh and DEVILS BOX fucken RAWKS

    • Paula_

      Someone stating some valid points isn't a hater. So the was some lack of information (adress should have been on the ticket, opening hours of the open bar etc.), shit happens. Like Logan said, this was a first. And keep in mind organizing events like this cost The Chive plenty of money, the $8K doesn't cover it by a long shot.
      So at least now you know the next one will be even more awesome!

      Hugs,
      Paula
      – yes, yes, I will get back to trolling, promise

    You guys have THE best job ever in the history of mankind

  • dbones

    one question — what's the over-under on new Chivers being conceived at or immediately after this shindig?

  • TheRealJoel

    why did you all find it necessary to be in every photo, and the hover hand seems the main theme. lameish. would have been nicer to see how everyday chivers kick it at a party with random photos of them and not overly avuncular chive staff.

  • moeshere Foxdale

    LOL yall had a rocking good time…Great job Chivette's…Great Job indeed….

  • drew

    #16 hover hand man is my dood. o so youre not gonna put youre arm around me? hover hand-ed again? thats ok ill boss this photo too.

  • Frankie

    Who slept with who??

    • Lauren Gentile

      This gal didn't sleep at all! Got back to the hotel at about 12:30am and ended up packing/getting stuff done until I had to leave for the airport at 3am. I guess I ended up sleeping with an old lady on the plane….😉

      • Frankie

        Lauren, you´re awesome… pretty sure that old lady had a nice time

    • Paula_

      Hard to tell, but there was plenty of hot sex after all women left. Next day at noon there was still a cute pile of cuddling drunk male Chivers.

      Hugs,
      Paula
      – the one you love to hate

  • Brian

    I've noticed John wearing a scarf while partying before and there was a similar picture to #12 of chicks trying it on. I think I need to get a scarf now, seems like a good strategy to get the ladies.

    • Ron

      If you want to look like a douchebag.

  • quasipickle

    FYI – love the new thumbnail mouseover effect.

  • Josh

    Had A great time! can't believe none of my photobombs made it in!
